Crisis on Infinite Earths started on Dec. 8, giving The CW a major boost. The Rookie ticked up, but NCIS: LA slipped. Here’s a look at the full TV ratings.
There wasn’t too much new on tonight, but there was enough to see a shake up in the TV ratings. Supergirl kicked off this year’s Arrowverse crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths, and it certainly saw the views explode. Here’s a look at the full ratings for Dec. 8.
Let’s start with the football, which helped to give God Friended me another boost after its week off. With 24.03 million still tuned into the NFL Overrun, it wasn’t all that surprising to see the 14% uptick in the audience and 40% uptick in the demo for the feel-good dramedy.

- Thursday TV ratings: Grey’s Anatomy up, Walker Independence down
- Wednesday TV ratings: One Chicago mixed, Kung Fu down (November 9)
- Tuesday TV ratings: The Resident and Monarch down (November 8)
- Monday TV ratings: All American down, Quantum Leap up (Nov. 7)
- Weekend live TV ratings: Fire Country and FBI mixed
However, 60 Minutes in the hour before it didn’t see the same upward ticks, but did pull in decent figures. Sadly, NCIS: LA couldn’t keep the upward ticks, with the demo falling by 25% to a low 0.6. The audience also fell by 10% to 5.75 million. I don’t think this puts the show in danger, but it’s something that could affect the long-term future and will affect NCIS: New Orleans when the show moves to Sundays in February 2020.
NBC pulled in 14.37 million for the pregame, with 13.72 million people staying tuned in for the Seahawks at the Rams. Meanwhile, ABC started with a special, which saw Kids Say the Darndest Things pushed back an hour. That push mean a considerable drop in both metrics, falling 25% in the audience and 33% in the demo. However, The Rookie managed to improve in its metrics, seeing a 9% upward tick in the audience at a 20% boost to the demo to match NCIS: LA in the hour.
All eyes were on Supergirl, though, kicking off The CW’s Arrowverse crossover. We knew that it was going to be rank high for the network, but the ratings exploded, especially classed as an episode of Supergirl. It brought a 92% boost to the total audience and 200% boost to the demo.
This wil be considered a special when the average ratings for Supergirl are taken into account. What it does tell The CW is that the Arrowverse crossovers are necessary. They’re wanted by the fans, and those who usually only watch The Flash or Arrow or any of the others are willing to tune in to find out what’s going on in all episodes.
I will admit that this was my first introduction to Brainy and now I need to watch Supergirl‘s current season to see more of him. Why didn’t I know about him before this point?
